We live on Portsmouth Avenue, about 7 blocks from UP. This morning we found that our house had been cordoned off by yellow police tape (we do not know exactly when it was placed there; we found it about 0930. My partner was told that WE ARE NOT ALLOWED ON THE SIDEWALK. The neighbors across the street, with their big "we-heart-bush" ARE "allowed" on their sidewalk, however - pictures clearly show this fact.
In addition to the crime tape, there are about a dozen robo's and a large van stationed kitty corner from us. Four horse cops are patroling (or should I say "trolling"?) in front of our house.
About five minutes ago about six large RAZ busses drove down Portsmouth, followed by the usual phalanx of the Nazis we pay for....
I am really really angry.
I am also really really sad - a different neighbor across the street told us that if people just wouldn't "act up" (and we assume that she is referring specifically to us) none of this would have to happen. (baa.)
